Since the Olympics in 2012, the government has provided additional funding of £150 million per annum for academic years to create a 'legacy' and improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. Schools spend the additional funding on improving their provision of PE and sport.
Across the Blossom Federation, we are committed to ensuring our children understand the importance of being active, having a healthy lifestyle and enjoy sports and games activities, from our very youngest children to our Y6's.
During the academic year all KS1 and KS2 children received two hours of physical education a week. KS2 children also have the chance to participate in various organised sports during the lunch hour (Cricket / football / hockey / basketball and athletics). All KS1 and KS2 children had the opportunity to attend after school clubs that were in part funded by the sports funding.
The school also participated in various inter school competitions, funding from the sports budget was used to pay the outside sports specialist who organised and took the School team to these events (football / gymnastics/ hockey / athletics).
